We realize that your pet is like a member of your family, and you want the best possible care for your loved one throughout his or her lifetime. The veterinarians and staff at Highway 58 Animal Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee are dedicated to partnering with you in the health care of your pet from the first preventive examinations and vaccinations of your young, healthy pet through early detection and treatment of disease as your pet ages.
At Highway 58 Animal Hospital, we believe that annual routine check-ups and preventive care are the best way to keep your pet healthy. Frequent physical exams help us establish an overall health profile of your pet and can help alleviate serious health problems later in your pet’s life.
During a physical exam, our veterinarians will perform a complete wellness examination of your pet, checking your pet's teeth and oral cavity, examining the joints and muscles, heart and lungs. We’ll check everything from nose to tail and in between. Wellness blood profiles and urinalysis also may be recommended for your pet at certain ages, or if they fit certain risk categories.
Many diseases that were once fatal to pets can now be prevented through the use of vaccinations. We will assess your pet’s risk of exposure to diseases and provide vaccinations as needed for protection.
To keep your companions feeling their best, we will develop preventive programs regarding the best ways to control fleas and ticks in your house, your yard, and on your pet. We will provide guidance for your pet’s nutritional needs for each life stage including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance, and performance.
Every pet is different and each requires a different veterinary healthcare management plan. As pets age, their health care needs change considerably. Puppies and kittens require different medical procedures and tests than an adult dog or cat, or one in his or her senior years. At Highway 58 Animal Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee, we understand the health care needs that each pet faces during every stage of life. We have devised special health care plans for dogs and cats at three life stages: kitten or puppyhood, adult years, and senior years.
